Mentors to Nurture the Champion Within You

Goalie Video Review-1

Developing Character.

Building Future Leaders.

Creating Excellence.

Leadership is simply doing the right thing each and every day. Aspiring elite athletes, like those who attend the Center of Excellence, must learn how to do 8 things right, and then commit, or take ownership of The Process of reaching their potential.

Right

Through daily, on-site life skills and leadership coaching, as well as TPH’s nationwide Center of Excellence mentorship program led by coach, mentor, and current Chief Operating Officer Francis Anzalone, our student-athletes are shown “how” to do those 8 things the right way.

Delivered via Zoom, Coach FA’s Mentorship Program includes live lessons, individual assignments, self-evaluation opportunities, and on-site follow-up activities.

Success starts before class.

We believe in using data to empower our staff with a more holistic understanding of our student-athletes via Kinduct's Athlete Management System. Kinduct's platform consolidates athlete performance, wellness, and injury-related data, which we collect via surveys and testing. This information allows our team to assess, engage, and monitor each individual student-athlete's workload.

REAL WORLD EXPERIENCES

More than athletics. More than academics. Building a holistic experience to create the opportunity to become an elite human.

  • Community Service

    Part of attending the Center of Excellence is ensuring our student-athletes are connected with their communities and understand the value of providing their time and support. All of our locations take part in community service projects from raking leaves across the neighborhood to assisting at soup kitchens.

  • Guest Speakers

    Our guest speakers bring new perspectives and ample experience from their trade and life. Our student-athletes have been fortunate enough to have been visited by guests including current professional athletes, coaches, and referees. Our guests are not just limited to the industry of sport, but include business executives, marketing specialists, psychologists, and physical therapy experts, among others.

  • Field Trips

    We make a conscious effort to make sure our student-athletes get exposure to many different experiences. Previous field trips include museums, professional sport facilities, college campuses, and more.

What Our CoE Families Are Saying

"Coach FA's Mentorship Program has helped me increase my confidence and also how to work harder on and off the ice. Coach FA talks about the importance of getting in the right mindset before games and staying in that mindset during games which has impacted me as a player. I strive every day to be a better student, athlete, and person."

"TPH Academy Superior has provided my son with a comprehensive academic and athletic environment that has challenged him and supported him these past few years. The versatile academic options and willingness of the Head of Academics have allowed him to pursue higher level and college preparatory coursework. Mrs. Doman has enabled him to access needed electives, provided pathways to socially interact with local high school peers, and participate in worthwhile community service projects. TPH’s program and athletic training have provided an amazing opportunity to ensure our son's optimal athletic performance, created advanced hockey skills and developed a goal-oriented mindset. Lastly, the friendships he has developed and the memories of the TPH will last a lifetime."

"FA mentorship program helped me to identify what routine helps me play my best. It also taught me how to get noticed and how to find the right coach or team. "

"What I love about TPH is their leadership and mentorship of their program.  The academics are great, they are all NCAA certified classes that they are taking. But the leadership is par none. It is raising these boys and girls to be leaders out in the community and wherever they end up."

"Without question, TPH Detroit has contributed greatly to our son’s hockey development over the past 2 years. He has matured and grown as a person, and we have witnessed clear, tangible improvements in his overall performance on the ice. Simply put, he is a different hockey player from the day he arrived at TPH Detroit. Our son’s passion for the game is higher than ever, and we are excited to watch him pursue his goal of playing higher level hockey in the future. Our sincere appreciation for the professionalism and efforts of the entire TPH Detroit staff!"

"Coach FA's mentorship program gave me very helpful advice to assess, adapt to, and respond to any situation. The program taught me one of the most important things: how to create, pursue, and maintain my personal brand. Another important aspect it taught me was how to view coaches, GMs, teammates, etc. The ideas we were taught have helped me through major and minor decisions and inconveniences throughout my 2 years with the CoE.

""The major contributor for our decision to send him away at an early age was Pat O’Neill. He has been a pleasure to deal with since our very first connection. He is great on the phone and even better in person. He is clear with his presentation, makes sure you understand what he is laying out and undeniably the best with his follow up. I am so happy that Pat played a significant part in Casey’s Academics. You are very lucky to have a quality partner in your organization. We could only wish that Casey meets and surrounds himself with more people like Pat, not only in his hockey career, but in his journey in life.""

"The guest speakers gave me tools that helped me stay motivated through the long season. My favorite topics were habits, selflessness, respect, and nutrition."

"I wanted to write to tell you how much of an impact Matt Cooke has made with our son, Landon. Landon has looked up to Matt since day one and has sought him out to talk through situations, not only on the ice but also off the ice. Matt has continued to invest his time, knowledge, and wisdom in Landon and help him navigate difficult situations. Matt came to watch one of Landon’s tournament games and stayed after the game to connect with Landon and talk through the game. His belief in our son and motivational talk meant the world to us and Landon."
